DUNDALK MIDFIELDER Richie Towell has been named as the PFAI Player of the Year 2015, having been chosen by his peers as the best player during the 2015 League of Ireland season.

Towell helped the Lilywhites record a league and cup double with 29 goals in all competitions, and finished ahead of Cork City attacker Mark O’Sullivan and Dundalk teammate Daryl Horgan to take the award.

Lilywhites manager Stephen Kenny was named Manager of the Year, having guided Dundalk to back-to-back league titles, while Danny Furlong’s goalscoring exploits for newly promoted Wexford Youths saw him recognised as the First Division Player of the Year.

Shamrock Rovers midfielder Brandon Miele beat off competition from Ismahil Akinade of Bohemians and Dundalk’s Sean Gannon to lift the Young Player of the Year trophy, while Wes Hoolahan was named Overseas Player of the Year, ahead of Robbie Brady and Seamus Coleman.
